Tottenham ball boy opens up on interaction with Mourinho vs Olympiacos

Tottenham see off Olympiacos

Tottenham’s last outing was a Champions League clash vs Olympiacos.

The tie was Jose Mourinho’s first European game as Spurs boss, but it didn’t get off to a great start for the north London outfit.

Olympiacos opened the scoring six minutes in, and then doubled their advantage 13 minutes later.

Tottenham would pull one back shortly before the interval to boost their hopes of a comeback.

The Lilywhites then produced a dominant second-half display, which saw Spurs emerge with a comprehensive 4-2 victory.

That win also ensured Spurs’ place in the Champions League last-16, although they are unable to top Group B.

The youngster has since spoken out about playing a role in Kane’s first of the evening, and Mourinho coming to speak to him:

“It’s all a bit surreal.

 “I was just doing my job and I still can’t quite believe what happened.

“I didn’t even see the goal! I was busy getting the ball that had come off and then I heard the cheer. I turned around and Harry was celebrating. I looked at the replay on the screen and watched exactly what happened.

“You can see from my smile it was just unbelievable. Jose didn’t have to do that. It was really nice of him to come over to me. It’s made my day, my life, really! I love Spurs and it was an amazing moment I’ll never forget.” As quoted by Sky Sports News.
